This NASA video segment describes some science principles found at the circus. Simple machines such as levers and pulleys are explained and demonstrated. Potential energy and kinetic energy are also introduced. Topics: mechanics, potential energy, kinetic energy, simple machines, circus
This NASA video segment provides a problem that reviews the procedure to calculate kinetic energy. You will also learn about the Law of Conservation of Energy and how energy changes from potential energy to kinetic energy. Topics: mechanics, conservation, energy, Law of Conservation, kinetic energy, potential energy
In this NASA video segment learn how to calculate the force, energy, motion, and work of an object. Find out how these properties compare with one other. Color animation is used to demonstrate how to calculate each property using proper units of measurement. This video segment also explains the difference between potential and kinetic energy as well as how to calculate gravitational potential energy. Examples are provided throughout the segment to for clarification. Topics: mechanics, work, force, energy, motion, properties, potential energy, kinetic energy
Learn about the chemical reaction that occurs when liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen are combined to operate the space shuttle's three main engines. See how this controlled explosion moves the shuttle up into orbit. Topics: NASA, NASA eClips, NIA, Launchpad, secondary, videos, education, engineering, technology, science,...
